Abstract

The term “ultracold neutrons” is used ambiguously. For our purposes ultracold neutrons are those that undergo specular reflection when they fall from vacuum at right angles onto a medium with an appreciable positive amplitude of coherent scattering (for example, beryllium, copper, graphite, etc.), i.e., neutrons with velocities less than or of the order of 6 m/sec. Essentially, ultracold neutrons are defined in this manner in the monograph [1].
